from texas today. she's out on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio. good to see you as well, congresswoman. >> fredricka, good to be with you this afternoon. >> excellent. let's begin. we're talking about these candidates, president obama, mitt romney, they are crisscrossing these battleground states. let me begin with you, congressman price. you heard kyung talking about colorado being so vital. it was obama country during the last election, but with the one third independent voters made up much of suburban moms, is this a strategy that romney is going to be spending more time there later on today. how focused is he on colorado and trying to sway perhaps those one third independent voters? >> that's colorado and it's wisconsin and it's ohio and pennsylvania and all of the other states that are still in play. and the independent voters are indeed absolutely pivotal. each candidate want to make sure they get out their base, their base voters. when we look at the independent votes which is why we believe so strongly that governor romney will be the next president, we see high
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
that columbus area. guest: columbus the state capital is where the ohio state is, that has become the key swing area of the state. it is growing. it has younger voters. it is a fluent. it is in an area that the previous bush's had one. but president obama made it flipped and took it by several percentage points. i think you are seeing a lot of attention in going there. this weekend, president obama will be finishing topping off his ohio campaigning in central ohio. in the past tv of cycles, we have seen the democratic candidate come up in northeast ohio and try to make that pushed. i think he is comfortable with the get out to vote efforts. he ought to go down -- he has to appeal to the swing areas. more independent voters. and you had this educated, affluent group, the base around ohio state university. and that has been critical. in the end, if you show that map, ohio is broken up, we have said it for years into 5 ohios. those five areas, plus some of the border areas, we have about seven media markets. it makes a very expensive to campaign here. in gubernatorial races and some presidential r

votes done early. richard trumka, the president of the afl-cio was speaking at an event in columbus today, talking about the importance of getting people out to vote. here is why. the obama campaign made it a sfr piece because they believe they can win it and get younger people out to the polls and people out there camp to the polls and president obama has a lead going into the early vote. and absentee, is strong enough, because the republicans believe they'll win in the election day voting. >> peter doocy is live in fairfax, virginia where national polls are showing the race between governor mitt romney and president obama is a statistical dead heat. peter? >> that's right, uma, here in fairfax county today, virginia's largest locality. 1.1 million people live here and barack obama won this county by 109,000 votes in 2008. helping him win the state of virginia, we've seen a steady stream of people walking from the parking lot into the polls, today is the last day in virginia and you can vote absentee in person and since every vote is important in virginia in 2012, asking them what
position. this is where we're seeing the enthusiasm is on the president's side. frankly, i'm in columbus, ohio. and i've been to phone banks. i've been to canvas operations. and there are women everywhere coming out of the woodwork who are volunteering for president, and who are turning out to vote. >> heather, i want to bring you in here. you know, part of the problem that romney has had, he has not tried the say too, too much on anything related to women. but then he appears in ads with people like richard mourdock, and the republican party is filled with these whackos that say the things they do and can't help themselves. bill clinton had plenty to say about richard mourdock yesterday. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> the nominee who defeated him said he wanted to go to washington to bring more partisanship, that his idea of a happy day was enforcing his opinion on someone else. i don't want and governor romney endorsed the guy. we cannot afford to put the white house and the congress in the hands of people who say it is my way or the highway. >> now he -- clinton is of c
'm going to be watching most is the area around columbus, franklin county. and it's not just for a selfish purpose. i really think that is going to be a county that could swing either way. we've seen that in congressional races and we've seen that in presidential races in the past. a lot of folks have looked at southwest ohio where cincinnati is. it's expected president obama will take cincinnati. i think franklin county could be where a lot of action is tonight. i can oaga county, where cleveland is, that's going to be heavily democratic. in fact, all of northern ohio is going to be heavily democratic. western ohio, alongside i-75, which leads up to michigan, that's going to be strong republican turnout. and of course we have the rural areas. those are going to be interesting to watch as well. >> one of the things we heard so much in the campaigns is it's a story about unemployment, and especially in ohio. i've pulled up the unemployment numbers, according to the bureau of labor statistics as of september 2012, and on the lower half of the state you see pretty bad unemployment, 9.4% in mo
in columbus, ohio. the labor unions which basically run turnout for the democratic party, we don't have that analog. it is run by the local republican parties so we can't go in and do a lot of on the ground door knocking. we tried it in 2010. it was very difficult because we don't have the store front and we don't have the brand. we did expand the map at the end. it obviously wasn't successful. i just don't know how we could have done it differently. if you look at the exit polls, the way that obama won was on the ground in cleveland with a lot of the minority voters. i just don't know that's a job for super pacs. >> do you feel the same way that super pacs can't do this? they can't be ground efforts because they don't have a brand? >> i don't think that they can be ground efforts. you have to leave that to the campaign. romney failed on that. or the parties. but i will say the republican side suffered in some ways from having too much money. because there were all these groups, crossroads may not have a brand but each group can have one specific message that you keep driving and drivin
: we're going now to tom, from columbus, ohio. we're discussing the resignation of general david petraeus. your thoughts? caller: i have a couple of questions. the first, i have read where the house, eric cantor knew something about this relationships fairly early on. is there any reason this was not used as material for the republicans to win the election? host: you think that it was a legitimate campaign issue, going back to the timeline of events from "usa today"? going back to the time line -- general petraeus spoke to the source on the same day, that is the time line that was laid out. caller: i think it would have been a credible campaign event. it is just curious, with all the mudslinging of a presidential election, that someone did not take ball and run with it, i guess. i am curious as to why someone, even some low-level, did not try to test the waters and push this into the media to find out if there could be a bite in the last week or two before the election. host: thank you for the call, from ohio this morning. the woman who has been in -- implicated with general petr
, now, with jack hanna, director emeritus at the columbus zoo, host of "jack hanna's wild countdown." and he's brought along some very active fellas, obviously. >> these are lions. these aren't people's pets. going back to africa about 1978, this animal has decreased 80% in the wild. 80%. the animal, like rabbits, is almost gone. >> how old? >> a little baby lion. >> almost nine weeks. >> that's remarkable, the claws. >> they can have six or seven cubs at a time. they can be heard about five miles away when they roar. >> this one making a little coughing noise. early, he makes a little hacking sound. >> they learn all this stuff when they grow up. >> can we touch? is that going to be okay? >> it looks real nice to people at home. but the american zoo and aquarium association, a lot of the animals, from breeding zones. this could end up in the columbus zoo. >> it is a beautiful, beautiful -- >> aren't they something? >> yeah. >> they really are. >> who else do we have? >> you manage to do this, still, after 30 years of being here, bringing animals i never heard of before. this is a c
with us? we will go on to brooklyn, in columbus, ohio, on our democratic line. >> i just wanted to say congratulations to obama and his family, and go obama. >> we will go next to miami, florida. >> i just wanted to basically say congratulations, obama. i am proud to be a first-time voter. i think things are really going to change in four years. it is his second time in. i think, to the point that he is not running for reelection, the republicans in congress will -- they will stop stalling everything he is trying to do, and try to give the president a chance to change things. >> steve think this will be different? >> i definitely do. this election had a lot of name- calling, trying to attack the other candidates. people have noticed that, and have reacted negatively toward the. obviously, romney did not win the election. i think people are looking for the positive things they will do for the country, instead of, this guy is going to do this. things like that. i think it is a step forward. >> we are joined from nebraska on the independent line. thanks for waiting. >> thank you for takin
fellow idahoans over for a barbecue. >> let's head south, columbus, georgia, great neighborhood, 209,000. >> in columbus prices are also up 10%. that was one of the foreclosure capitals of the world. totally changed around. looking at that quaint cottage feel like you're in england but the mesh flag gives it away. sweet, sweet house. it has a dining room that has a bank of beautiful bay windows and original ceiling medallions. the kitchen has freshly painted cabinets, on the small size by nice and mild counter and hardwood floors and this porch comes with iron work trim and a swing in the back. never will use it but everybody likes to have it and there's a flagstone patio. >> gorgeous. >> big green lawn out back. >> and let's end up in phoenix, arizona, hard to believe but only 229,9. >> easy to impress, but you don't see many yellow garage doors and triples but, for this house. made for someone who doesn't like to mow the lawn, all gravel. a mild floor throughout entire house which makes it easy to maintain. >> just don't drop anything. >> of course you can't do that, there's a tota
those votes. we've been to columbus, cleveland. those are the high numbers that the president, scott, is too close to call there tonight my campaign sources say. >> pelley: jan, thank you. the president of course has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be re-elected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign. and nancy cordes is covering the uniquobama campaign. she's in chicago tonight. nancy you spent quite a bit of time in ohio as well. >> i sure did, scott. the other day was a perfect example. we're five days out from election day. the president spentsdz the you're day barn storming ohio. heads home to the whitehouse to sleep and then comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just sowch he naifers this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country he this election season. 26 of them, more than a quarter were in one state, ohio. and he wasn't just in the big cities, he went to the suburbs, he went to small towns. and the main reason that the ohio campaign fo
ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav

were watching columbus stumble across america. latino voters, who knew? demographic changes moving slow as glaciers but this one seemed to sneak up on the news media like a sudden thunderstorm. i've been trying to introduce my colleagues to real latinos and immigrants for sometime. i've worked on bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bills and stayed at the table to work out a compromise, even after all republicans had left the table, but the republican party seem much more interested in the imaginary latinos they tried to use as a wedge issue so they craft messages aimed at the very few americans who are not offended when immigrants are referred to as criminals, gang bangers, freeloaders, law breakers whenever they are spoken about in america. the party nominated a presidential candidate who has creative ways to defend latinos. call for the more than -- more than 10 million families and say just support them. celebrate the extreme arizona laws, check. threatened to veto the dream act and let hundreds of thousands of young people who applied for deford action, fear for their futur
and stretched his energy policy. they're democrats, but he thinks he can pick up the votes. columbus, cleveland, those are high numbers for the president. it's too close to call there my campaign sources say. >> jan, thank you. the president has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be reelected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign and nancy cortis is covering the obama campaign. you spent time in ohio as well. >> reporter: i sure did, scott. it was a perfect example. we were out five days from election day. the president spends the entire day barn storming ohio, heads to the white house to sleep and comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just how much he favored this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country this campaign season. 26 of them, more than a quarter, were in one state, ohio and he wasn't just in the big cities. he went to suburbs and small towns. the main reason the obama campaign felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida
